There is a huge difference. They are not even the same kind of bird. They have different dietary needs and pretty much all their other requirements are different. Can you describe your bird to me? What color/s is it. What color beak? Does it have a small pointy beak that sticks mostly straight out from the face or does the upper beak curve downward forming a bit of a hook? When the bird sits on a perch, how many toes are to the front, and how many to the rear? Where did you get this bird, a pet store or where? Thanks, Patricia
